The bellhousing bolt pattern for the trans and the input shaft bearing
retainer pilot should be the same size as the original 3 speed unit, so that
much is simple. The clutch spline on the newer T10 is not that same as your
original so you need to change the disc to a fine spline. The driveshaft
yoke is also different so that has to be changed too. The truck should not
have a trans crossmember so that is a non issue as the T10 just hangs off
the bellhousing like the 3 speed did. I know its not good for an aluminum
case but you can get away with it if you go easy on it.
Nothing that cant be done but I'd do my homework first.
Although I havent done this ecat swap, I've deal with a lot of 6 cyl chevy's
and 4 speeds. Latest was a Muncie behind a 250 six, but that is a simple
nut and bolt job.

Dear Good People.

I have a 58 Chev P/U and would like to do it.
